Faith is the element, the “chemical” which, when mixed with prayer, gives one direct communication with Infinite Intelligence.
– Napoleon Hill
I am a big fan of Napoleon Hill.
His writings have had a huge impact on my life.
He has much to say but more importantly if applied and put into persistent, daily action will yield powerful results.
This is what happens during Centering Prayer.
In faith we sit with God.
With the use of our sacred word we ever so gently return to and open to the presence and actions of God within.
You might also say we open to Infinite Intelligence or even the Universal Mind.
And let God, Infinite Intelligence, the Universal Mind or whatever you wish to name it pray in us.
Imagine how this will impact your life over the long term if you practice Centering Prayer day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year.
